With 10 years’ experience in guided implant placement and 3D printed models, Dr. Massoomi brings us the latest update on guided oral surgery and robotics in dentistry. His presentation focuses on recent improvements in CBCT technology, guide fabrication, and 3D printing demonstrating how they improve patient outcomes and aesthetics in a predictable manner, also providing published data showing that guided implant placement is becoming the standard of care, replacing "free-hand" implants. 
Presentation highlights:

Case selection and treatment planning
Full mouth rehab cases using CBCT with “All-on-4” implant concept
Guided bone reduction using a novel "3-guide technique" developed and published by Dr. Massoomi
Showcase the first and only FDA approved Dental Robot "Yomi" - the future of dentistry
